I like it!
The Dowling kid has great size but can he play right out the gate?
I'd love to get Gallon as a kick return specialist. When we have a Michigan Wolverine on the roster we are just about Guaranteed a Lombardi.

Add to that the kid is one hell of a receiver too! He would make a great addition as Cobb's backup in the slot.

Jeremy Gallon
Quote:
four-year letterman ...appeared in 51 contests at wide receiver and kick and punt returner, making 25 starts ... holds the program record for receiving yards in a single season (1,373 yards) ... holds the Big Ten record for receiving yards in a single game (369) ... has recorded a reception in 39 consecutive games ... has recorded at least four receptions in 17 of his last 18 contests.

BTW, i guess my wish list at SS could include Deone Bucannon 6-1 211 out of Washington State. Solid tackler, over 100 tackles 2 seasons in a row. 6 picks last year tied for Pac 12 lead. 3 FFs, 3 FRs. Seems like a real football player, with decent size.

Okay, here's the one I'm going with. FWIW I used first-pick.com (after they tightened up the trade rules, but it is still too easy IMO to trade). But since anything I would come up would be even worse, and since I think this is a year for trading down from #21, here goes....

Your Picks:
Trade Round 1#21 to Tampa Bay for Round 2 #6 and Round 3 #5.
Trade Round 2 #6 to NYGiants for Round 2 #11 and Round 3 #10.
Trade Round 2 #11 to New Orleans for Round 2#26 and Round 3#27.
Round 2 Pick 21: Weston Richburg, C, Colorado State
Round 2 Pick 26 (N.O.): Jarvis Landry, WR, LSU
Trade Round 3 #5 to Dallas for Round 3 #7 and Round 7 #23.
Trade Round 3 #7 to St. Louis for Round 3 #11 and Round 7 #26.
Round 3 Pick 10 (NYG): Yawin Smallwood, ILB, Connecticut
Round 3 Pick 11 (STL): Telvin Smith, OLB, Florida State
Round 3 Pick 21: C.J. Fiedorowicz, TE, Iowa
Round 3 Pick 27 (N.O.): Daniel McCullers, DT, Tennessee
Round 3 Pick 34 (COMP): Anthony Steen, OG, Alabama
Round 4 Pick 21: Christian Jones, ILB, Florida State
Round 5 Pick 21: Brent Urban, DE, Virginia
Round 5 Pick 36 (COMP): Nat Berhe, SS, San Diego State
Round 6 Pick 21: Nickoe Whitley, FS, Mississippi State
Round 7 Pick 21: Dri Archer, WR, Kent State
Round 7 Pick 23 (DAL): Aaron Colvin, CB, Oklahoma
Round 7 Pick 26 (STL): De'Anthony Thomas, RB, Oregon

My general strategy was driven by the following:
1. Most of the people penciled in as possible at 21 or later to fill GB needs (e.g. Nix) are overvalued. The one exception for me is Mosley, but in the end I gave up Mosley because...

2. I think the real wealth of this draft (not counting picks 1-15) is between mid-2nd and the end of the third. But I also think it isn't beyond the realm of possibility that given other teams competing for players between #21 and mid 2nd could if cards "fell right", #21 could be used to pick 2 or even 3 picks in this wealth range. (Though I'm skeptical of getting 4 extra as I got here).

3. I think FS (the biggest shortcoming of my draft here) is very thin after Clinton-Dix and Pryor, and I think Pryor belongs in the early 2nd. To my mind none of the rest of the FS represents enough on the "replace Nick Collins" scale to warrant anything before the 4th. (Indeed, the only safety I saw as 4th or better after those two is SS Dixon from Baylor.) There might be some small school guy I don't know about who is the Nick Collins of this draft (I never heard of Collins before he was drafted either), but of the usuals suspects people name, Bailey/Dowling/et al, I think they're late 5th quality or less.

4. I think the DTs/DEs that would go between #1 at 21 and #2 at 21 are also somewhat overrated (especially Nix, IMO), though there's a lot of mid- and late 2nd people there.

5. I ultimately ended up more "best available player" than I thought I would. I never expected to pick a WR in the second, but when Landry fell, I couldn't not go for it. (If he hadn't been available, I wouldn't have gone WR until late fourth or even fifth (would have aimed at Grant from Tulane or Jones from Notre Dame).

6. Biggest reach for me probably was Steen at OG. (No one should be surprised that I wanted two high OL picks, given my past advocacy.) If Mewhort had lasted, I might have foregone Landry in the 2nd; but the guy I really wanted was James from Tennessee.

7. My thought with getting the extra 7ths was to get a jump on the FA signings. I wanted to get some "change of pace" speed back/WR and so wanted either Archer or Thomas; but jumped on both when Archer fell that late.

8. I can't believe I didn't draft more than two OL, actually, especially with all the picks in rounds 2,3, and 4. But there was always a BPA when I came up. And the difference between my knowledge of 6th/7th OL and undrafted FA OL isn't enough to warrant a flyer in those rounds. So late I went with "bodies at position/role of need" or "left on board because of injury/character concerns".

9. FWIW, here is my draft with no trades at all (without the extra picks, more abandonment of BPA):

Round 1: Mosley, Alabama, ILB
Round 2: Richburg, Colo State, C
Round 3a: Smith, Florida State, OLB
Round 3b: McCullers, Tennessee, DT
Round 4: Dixon, SS, Baylor.
Round 5a: Jones, WR, Notre Dame.
Round 5b: Urschel, OG, Penn State. (I *really* didn't like the choices here -- everyone available looked like a reach -- but was stuck with the pick, so reverted to my "OL OL OL" knee jerking.)
Round 6: Whitley, FS, Mississippi State.
Round 7:Colvin, CB, Oklahoma.

A mistake compounded by more mistakes to trade down. I'd expect that of Ted Thompson, but not of you, Wade.

As for your no trade version, a little bit better, but no more than a shot in the dark at solving the Safety problem, while picking up a lot that we really don't need IMO - Center, D-Line, WR, Corner.

IMO we do need a center. Everyone is so convinced we have a potential late rounder who is the solution. I want more than that going in to the season. And IMO Richburg was the best center out there. I thought long and hard about taking him at both #11 and #6. He may bomb, but right now I think he's got "10-year starter" look all over him. Which, as you know, is not something I think of many of the current OL on the Packer roster.

I might have taken Mewhort at OT instead, but he was gone in the draft by #6, and that to me was too high for someone who had less upside than Richburg does.

And as for DL, Daniels is good, and then we have...unproven guys and BJ Raji. To me this is major need.

WR, I agree with you on, but IMO when you've got value at a position at a half round or perhaps more earlier than the pick is available, it was hard not to pull the trigger. And the other WR is a late 7th for someone who might offer speed the team doesnt have -- either at WR or KR/PR. A flyer.

As for the corner pick, its a 7th rounder on someone who before the season was talked of as first round potential. A pure flyer,essentially an unsigned FA.

I agree the lack of FS is a problem. But, IMO, Clinton-Nix is long gone before the Packers can get him without major sacrifice. And Pryor for me is a reach until the second. And, IMO, everyone after that is a reach until well past the third round. Even given the shjt that is the team at FS, I don't think anyone out there is substantially better than Berhe (who played both FS and SS)/Whitley possibilities. The last thing we need is spending a second or third or even a fourth on a guy who has two or more of the following: takes bad angles, lacks closing speed, and/or bad tackler. And from what I've read, all of the others do.

Now if you want to say Mosley is a better solution at ILB than Smallwood plus Jones, I can see that. But being able to have both of those plus a top WR and Telvin Smith or Fiedorwitz, I think the decision is pretty hard.

I was surprised myself at my trade down proclivities here. But, as I said, I think late 1st early 2nd in general, and especially in the draft, and there is amazing value out there between picks 45 and 100 or so this year. Given the number of team needs, being able to add four or more picks in that range I couldn't pass by.

I wouldn't be surprised to see them trade back, and I hope they do.

Load up on 2nd, 3rd and 4th rounders.

Package some later round picks to get into the 4th or some creative method.

Folks are saying this is one of the deepest drafts in a long time.

Even before they awarded a 3rd rounder, I figured we'd end up with 4 picks in the first three rounds this year. Now I'm starting to wonder if we'll end up with 5 or more.

Wade, I was thinking more on the realist side vs. the crazy game approach, so I was glad to see your straight up picks.

I agree with you on many team needs, and especially like the idea of adding WR as insurance should we suffer an injury there.

C is super important too for the same reason.

Then at S we have differing opinions. I happen to think Ha-Ha and Pryor may be overhyped, and like some of the other Safeties better. Except Ahmad Dixon. I hope like hell we draft him!

Since this is turning into a impromptu mock draft thread

1st Round: Guinness. Solid first choice. Has a blue collar background though there are worries of over exposure of late
2nd Round: Stella Artois. Polished product from a pedigree background
3rd Round: Blue Moon. Can't go wrong with this pick at this spot.
3rd Round Comp: Samaul Adams Seasonal. At this point, a pure value pick
4th Round: Fat Tire. Great production at current level but some worries over playing weight.
5th Round: Dos Equis Amber. Rotational option.
5th Round Comp: Newcastle Brown Ale. Good potential but either you hate this pick or love it at this spot
6th Round: Budweiser. Filler pick. Probably a product of the system rather than any real talent.
7th Round: Coors Light. See Budweiser analysis.

Wait, what kind of draft are we talking about here? Oh that draft! [grin1]

Two things I have learned from using 1st pick.
1. The names of players who don't go to Ohio State, and what rnds guys are expected to be drafted.
It's going to make watching the draft this year a little more interesting.

.2. Every draft I have done(and that's a lot), 1 of the top 10 players in the draft always seem to fall to 21, Ebron, Clinton-Dix, Dennard, Evans, Nix, Arnold, if that happens I see Ted grabbing whichever guy it is(the value just to high not to take at 21).

I have 2 that I will go with.

Using 1st pick....in the 1st Clinton-Dix fell to 21.

Stayed pat throughout the draft,came up with thi result:


Round 1 Pick 21: Hasean Clinton-Dix, FS, Alabama
Round 2 Pick 21: Kyle Van Noy, OLB, Brigham Young
Round 3 Pick 21: Deone Bucannon, SS, Washington State
Round 3 Pick 34 (COMP): Keith McGill, CB, Utah
Round 4 Pick 21: Chris Smith, DE, Arkansas
Round 5 Pick 21: Michael Schofield, OT, Michigan
Round 5 Pick 36 (COMP): David Fales, QB, San Jose State
Round 6 Pick 21: TJ Jones, WR, Notre Dame
Round 7 Pick 21: Rob Blanchflower, TE, Massachusetts

Since it's very improbable Clinton-Dix will fall to 21, I am also posting this draft.
I traded down to 30 since all the "big name" players were taken before 21.
Used those trade picks to move up in the 4th, 5th and 6th rnds.

Although this draft didn't score as mu "highest" according to 1st pick.
I like the guys that were available when I drafted, would take these guys anytime to keep the "Draft and Develop" going in Green Bay.


Round 1 Pick 30 (S.F.): Kony Ealy, DE, Missouri
Round 2 Pick 21: Marqise Lee, WR, Southern California
Round 3 Pick 21: Deone Bucannon, SS, Washington State
Round 3 Pick 34 (COMP): Anthony Johnson, DT, LSU
Round 4 Pick 2 (WASH): Yawin Smallwood, ILB, Connecticut
Round 4 Pick 21: Charles Sims, RB, West Virginia
Round 5 Pick 10 (JAX): Dontae Johnson, FS, North Carolina State
Round 5 Pick 36 (COMP): Tyler Starr, OLB, South Dakota
Round 6 Pick 2 (WASH): David Fales, QB, San Jose State

Stayed pat throughout the draft,came up with thi result:


Round 1 Pick 21: Hasean Clinton-Dix, FS, Alabama
Round 2 Pick 21: Kyle Van Noy, OLB, Brigham Young
Round 3 Pick 21: Deone Bucannon, SS, Washington State
Round 3 Pick 34 (COMP): Keith McGill, CB, Utah
Round 4 Pick 21: Chris Smith, DE, Arkansas
Round 5 Pick 21: Michael Schofield, OT, Michigan
Round 5 Pick 36 (COMP): David Fales, QB, San Jose State
Round 6 Pick 21: TJ Jones, WR, Notre Dame
Round 7 Pick 21: Rob Blanchflower, TE, Massachusetts

Since it's very improbable Clinton-Dix will fall to 21, I am also posting this draft.
I traded down to 30 since all the "big name" players were taken before 21.
Used those trade picks to move up in the 4th, 5th and 6th rnds.

Although this draft didn't score as mu "highest" according to 1st pick.
I like the guys that were available when I drafted, would take these guys anytime to keep the "Draft and Develop" going in Green Bay.


Round 1 Pick 30 (S.F.): Kony Ealy, DE, Missouri
Round 2 Pick 21: Marqise Lee, WR, Southern California
Round 3 Pick 21: Deone Bucannon, SS, Washington State
Round 3 Pick 34 (COMP): Anthony Johnson, DT, LSU
Round 4 Pick 2 (WASH): Yawin Smallwood, ILB, Connecticut
Round 4 Pick 21: Charles Sims, RB, West Virginia
Round 5 Pick 10 (JAX): Dontae Johnson, FS, North Carolina State
Round 5 Pick 36 (COMP): Tyler Starr, OLB, South Dakota
Round 6 Pick 2 (WASH): David Fales, QB, San Jose State



Holy Crap buckeye! Your first 4 picks would go a very long way towards solving any problems we have on D. Keith McGill at the end of R3 would be a nice way to finish that off - though would like to see an ILB in there. And with your 2nd set, Kony Ealy and Anthony Johnson are big dudes. Getting Smallwood at the top of R4 would be big.

Hey, anyone think we may take a stab at DE Kareem Martin 6-6 266 out of North Carolina? Someone for fellow NC alumni Julius Peppers to mentor? Almost a prototype. He had 78 tackles last year, 20 for loss and 11 sacks. I could see it.

Wade all your trading down would drive me crazy. I would be a sniper in a bell tower somewhere and people would be wondering why. When I mumbled something about that damn "Ted" no one outside this board would have a clue since I have no Uncle named Teddy, Ted or Theodore.

Postal.

Yeah, I understand this draft is perceived to be deep, but you do want to get the best players you can out of a deep draft. Not to mention, for a real mock, there has to be some realistic expectations of the kinds of trades that can be made. Trades are not easy to pull off. I would imagine there will be a ton of teams wanting to trade down for the same reasons many in the draft game do.

Maybe this is the year Ted finds partners to trade up, as well as down. He does seem pretty masterful when it comes to closing draft day deals. All I care is that he lands some really good players for us. If he somehow walks away with 5 really solid players at their respective positions, I'll be happy and consider this team improved. Having 4 in the top 100 to start is a big help.

Buckeye, since Clinton-Dix actually DID last until #21 in your stand pat draft, why would you say you don't think he will last that long? In most of the mock drafts I've seen, he is still there. I like that one of yours mainly because you went back for another Safety in the 3rd round too.

Wade, as I have said, with the Packer propensity to cross-train O-Linemen to play Center and to not do a lot of sophisticated stuff from the Center position, I really don't think they should or will draft a Center until very late if at all.

Out of curiosity, which mocks have Dix available at 21? I think all of the nfl.com and a few others I've looked at all have him gone by the Rams at 13 or Bears at 14. I'd be ecstatic if he fell to us, mind you.

Yeah, I've seen him in the 10-15 range. But, stocks do fall, and maybe his does. I still question whether or not he is all of that. Is it his SEC experience that is driving up his stock? Because, to me, there are a handful more guys playing the position with equal or better skills/measureables. Pure, layman's fan perspective though. Sure, he is a good player and I would't mind at all if he were our pick. Not one bit.

Agree on the mocks. I haven't seen him falling.
